    There should be a sticky about running spacers in the rear

    Since you got a 5 lug its harder to find name brand ones like Spidertrax. Just make sure they come with Grade 10.9 Studs which they all usually do. And no bigger than 2"

    Most guys run spacers to fit bypasses between their frames and their wheels - you can run them, but there's nothing sacred about having the track width in the front and rear match - it'll help you turn better to have the rear a little narrower, but it's all up to you and how your truck feels - it's pretty cheap to experiment. Looking nice - what kind of bed liner is that?

    I wouldnt run spacers if you don't need them to clear shocks in this case. If you run dmz with bypasses outside the frame on stock axle you will have to run a spacer to keep your tires from rubbing the bypasses. I ran this set up on my old truck and had no problems.

    Tim is an awesome dude and his kit is beyond tried and tested, if you're going leafs, dmz is a good route to go.

    Nice! My truck was back at @dirt designs for a upgrade. Can't wait to get home and go drive it. I'm sure you're just as excited to get the kit on. It was a huge difference, turn radius does suck but mine wasn't great already. I also went from the grey to gloss black.

    Yep, your truck and the way you use it was was the main reason I went with dirt designs in addition to the awesome features they have and the reasonable price.

    You'd think all the ranger fags would get some good spacers made for their truck so they can be a hoonigan like the Vaughn Gittin Jr. truck.

    Yes I realized I used "ranger" and "good" in the same sentence, kind of contradictory.

    You should get them. Then I'll know how they work with the MCM kit. I really think I will at some point hopefully sooner or later.

    Yeah my tax return and some pocket cash will go towards it. Definitely going to get them. They should work as they are stock geometry. Will be getting the Unibal/steering upgrade as well.

    Sweet. I just have concerns with rubbing the lower arm or something. I am probably not right its just usually how my luck works out. I plan to do the uniball and steering also, its really why I want them. I probably have a few months until we finish stuff on my truck we started years ago and then I will pull the trigger.

    Yes, only gripe was the double sheer shock mounts got in the way of the schrader valve on the bypass. But overall good install.

    Probably wouldn’t go to him now, heard he hasn’t been hitting people up and left a few trucks unfinished. Tried asking what happened but no one responded.

    Yeah I think he's either overwhelmed with work, getting over the fab thing, or both. Too bad - he offered to do my whole sua with a bed cage for much less than the price DMZ quoted me for just a bolt in bed cage. Looks like I'll be buying some tools lol.

    Jeff was always cool with me asking for quotes and changing my mind with what I wanted to do. This was the one time I actually stuck to a plan

    Yeah chill guy, I have no bad experience with him. But wouldnt go back probably if its true that trucks were left untouched and had to get picked up.

    DMZ is top dollar but next level top dollar work.
